With its many lakes and streams in the Mammoth Lakes
Basin and surrounding areas, this region affords wonderful
opportunities for boating, canoeing and kayaking. Summer
brings both recreational paddlers, enjoying a relaxing
day on the water and serious fishermen, trying to catch
that prized trout. Rent a canoe, kayak or boat from
one of the many local rental companies and have a great
time. Take a guided tour via kayak on Mono Lake and
learn about its fascinating history. Boat around Crowley
Lake for a day of fishing or just to take in the amazing
You can even sail, if that is your boating pleasure
of choice. We've seen 24-foot sailboats on Crowley Lake
and even Mono Lake. Not very often of course, but it's
been done. More typically. you will see many fishing
boats, canoes and the occasional catamaran, as well
as people out kayaking. Any of the lakes that have road
access allow fishing boats. Some don't allow motors,
so you will have to check ahead on that. Water skiing
happens out on Crowley and up in June Lake. Catamaran
sailing works well on Crowley because of the often windy
afternoon conditions during the summer.
It is truly a memorable day for the whole family to
spend it on the water in the Mammoth Lakes area.
